Did you do a clean install or update from the avastUI ?

If the latter then it is probably in the shared gadgets folder, which means it will be restored on the next boot.

Control panel -> Programs and Features -> avast! -> Change -> uncheck the box "avast! gadget" reboot, it shouldn't come back.

This works for me. Thanks.

In the recent beta, it should be possible to use the gadget panel to remove it (at least I think so).
